    112 Dracula's castle, Transylvania Gothic:MULTI VOTE PLEASE

    Excerpt from the VANITY FAIR article "Out of the Shadows and Into the Limelight", April 17th, 2137:

    "... it's no wonder such a historical figure would grow wise, not weary, of the culture that had so willingly embraced, and at the same time loathed, the very idea of him. In front of the blind eyes of the public The Carpathia Towers sprung up in what still remained the pinnacle of decadence in the United States, New Los Angeles. His so-called "coming-out" gala trumped the Election Night victory, and it's no wonder. People were practically electing him to the position before the actual President had a chance to take the seat. The very idea that what was once a cash-cow for Hollywood was a real and very "alive" figure swept a nation primed for his type of eager hedonism and millions flocked to the deco edifice he had constructed to welcome them..."

    thanks mate, yeah i agree looking back now i wouldve/couldve done a lot more with this topic. being my first eow i really just did the bare bones to suss out how it all operates and everything...

    as for how long we spend on an env, not long mate... sometimes a morning, usually a day. id be lucky to spend 2 days on a single task unless i was under the weather or feeling off... not sure if this is industry std but it means we pump out a lot of stuff

    Wow ! what a round, I didnt post any finals, cause my work sucks but, it was a good experience for me to try to do some enviro, I will sure try to participate again the next rounds

    Anyway voted for :

    Marz : Man beautifull piece, really love the mood in it, and the concept is very good too !
    Gaius : Pfff... what can I say, the light, the colors, the view angle, the mood... Excellent work sir !
    Corrick : Man, I miss to see your stuff, you should come more often on CA and start a SB ! Really like what you have done, cause it's the only one who is really different. And it works well

    Well others who I might have voted for but I didnt :

    NicHols : Man really nice, but maybe you could have push the concept a little further.
    Mishkin : Awesome image, awesome castle, but I dont feel like it could be draculas castle.(completly subjectiv point of view )
    Tonic : Nice mood, nice image, but actually I think maybe it would have been good if we had seen a little more of a castle.

    Great job everyone !

    Great topic, great round, great entries. Thanks Chaos and thanks everybody for the comments!

    kevin mayle nice otherworldly colors, the castle could need a little more detail. I think it's not easy to manage a backlit environment.

    revenebo I must be less lazy, I must use references, I must make exercises and I must be more willing to go back on works and refine them once completed. I also should understand why my new monitor shows washed out colors.

    nichols I think the village is the natural pendant to the castle and I see it as a stroke of genius composition-wise. I like the rendering (but you could have added a little atmospheric depth...).

    Duq nice to see you in EoW! You've improved so much. I like what you did here, you handled the moonlight very well.

    funghi from yuggoth as above said some reference to take inspiration from and a rough perspective grid (or an horizon line at least) could be of great help.

    mark bot great spooky atmosphere (it reminds me of some Unreal Tournament scenario).

    tomonaga I like the towering silhouette of the castle but the building itself asks for some detail more. The lighting is weird, it looks like the sun has just set and the moon is already high in the sky, I like it.

    mishkin great rendering and design of the castle, nearly industrial-like.

    Marz your first post on CA rocks, very dark! I like the "impressionist" style.

    Pixelfish nice overall effect, did you use a 3D model as a base? Lighting could be pushed a little further.

    Lobo you should work on sfx! I think the lighting and the winged creature shift the focus from the castle but the overall effect is great.

    korpehn I like the atmosphere and overall effect. Some detail more could help.

    audit Great, bur I preferred your first image! Looks like you're a Friedrich fan... me too.

    Ros1 your first post on CA rocks too!! Great moonlit scene (some of the towers should be backlit but it doesn't really matter...). Hungry for more.

    arttorney estabilishing a perspective grid, using references and painting in b&w could be of great help here.

    arghmisfit dreamy and spooky at the same time... Love the lighting and the atmosphere.

    Tonic even if the focus isn't on the castle itself I think the image describes the environment quite well... Love it.

    darknight more castle! Its silhouette looks rather original, I'd like to see more of it.

    gaius that rock... rocks! But I'd like to see more of the castle, it rocks too.

    corrick the image is great but I think the topic asked for a more traditional setting. Anyway the fanged mouth on the facade is fantastic.

    You guys are wonderful, I feel like you got my back, But how come no one is brave enough to jump inon the next round? Hell we live in cyberspace..might as well know what it looks like. I haven't stumped you have I?

    Neither stumped nor fearful, I have decided it is pointless for reasons that are best left unsaid.

    It looks like tilting the horizon and making extreme one point perspective passing as three are the new lens flare. Did somebody put out a book recommending this or something? I'll make a note of it, anyway, for future reference.

    Kevin Mayle- nice job. It was just a little too fuzzy for me.
    Revenebo- voted for this although it seems strange that an apparent load bearing pillar should be hollow within this scale.
    NicholS- voted for this. No complaints.
    Dug- voted for this. atmospheric. Apparently you can get away with loose vegetation better than I. I can actually see that this one is pretty legit three point perspective. Some of the others dodged it by avoiding leading edge corners or else muffed it.
    Fungi from Y.- I found it mildly derivative of Sauron's tower, though I like the flying saucer clouds.
    Mark bot- Too dark for me. Lighting effects would help
    Tomonaga- looks more like an evil church than a castle
    Mishkin- Pretty good. Wish you could have laid off the tilting thing.
    Marz- more rendering please
    Pixelfish- looks flat which lighting effects could have made better
    Lobo- Dracula and a door. Where's the rest of the castle?
    Korpehn- wins the horizon tilting contest
    audit- unidentifiable as a castle
    Ros1- Can't really figure out here whether this is pure extreme one point perspective or there is some horizon tilting going on.
    arghmisfit- tilt, fuzz
    tonic- for a castle interior, there is a decided lack of bounding walls
    Darknight- Just a little too loose and there is not a distinct foreground, middle ground, and background
    Gaius- looked and looked but can't see a castle
    Corrick- text is the only thing that makes this have anything to do with Dracula's Castle. Regrettably, the text also expressly repudiates the "Transylvania" part of the assignment.
